October 5, 2010

National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supported hydrogen-powered vehicles was a main attraction at the "A Taste of Colorado" event in Denver over Labor Day weekend. During the event, the local CBS news affiliate aired a news story about the hydrogen-powered vehicle and an interview with Bob Remick, the Hydrogen Technologies and Systems Center Director at NREL.

Hydrogen-powered vehicles use the same basic technology as gasoline-powered engines, but run on hydrogen fuel instead.  Use of hydrogen-powered vehicles offer many advantages.  They are highly fuel efficient - up to 25% more efferent than gasoline-powered engines and can run for about 175 miles per fill up.  And, because the fuel contains no carbon, the engine doesn't produce carbon dioxide or other carbon compounds!
